Omaha Is to have Its first prolonged season
of summer opera. It has been for some years
past nn iistnbllshcd fact In the clues around
Omaha-Chicago , Milwaukee , St. Paul , Mln-
noapolU , Kansas City and Denver but the
venture has never before boon tried hero.
Manager' Burgess catuo to the conclusion
that in vlaw of the grout success that Iho
Fnrnatn Bluet theater bos had during Us
Jlrst season , ho could not round up lu a bet
tor manner than by offering patrons n season
of sutnmor'bpani , to bo prolonged so long ns
It shall bo profitable. Ho scoured
the Dodd opera company , which has ,
during the past two weeks , boon
playing In St. Joseph , Lenvonworth
nnd Topokn , and from the proas of these
cities it Is learned thut the company Is ono
of unii-uinl merit , carefully presenting the
operas selected uud giving ontlro satis
faction to the public. Thov will open their
Omaha season ut the Farnntn street theater
todnv , Sunday , Muy ! ! U , with n matinee ,
presenting "JMio Chimes of Normamly" for
Iho first half of yio week nud "Tho Mas-

"Thn Mllcndo , " Fiitlnlt/n , " "The Pirraus ot

operas being plvon each week. Miss Amy
Leslie Is the prlmu donna of the company
und she ubly assisted by Helen Ut. Clnlr.
Those two young lauio hnvo an established
standing In'tho operatic profession nnd nro
painstaking ami conscientious singers. Mr.
Muck Charles Is a fine tenor slngor nnd has
made many friends In thu clues already
visited. Dan Young Is an eccentric operatic
comedian widely known in the profession
nnd he is sure to gain great favor with the
Omaha public. Miss Lssllu writes ton friend

Intr u line appearance and nil being excellent
singers. She savs tbo girls are nrotty und

"Tho County Fair" will bo presented for
th < 3 last time In Omaha , the last half ot the
week In Boyd's theater. Last year the play
was presented for a wuok and loft nn ncrco-
able impression , so there Is every reason to
buliovo that It will provo again attractive.
"Tho County Fair" is a series of sketches of
Now England country llfo , and its homespun
settings should revive cheery'scones nnd
memories of days "down on the farm , "
Abigail Pruo , the heroine , who mattes
delightful butter and love to the shy
Otis , and whoso giddiness causes
heartiest laughter , should again bo a wel
come visitor. Brieilv , "Tho County Fair"
still vies with the most important succossoj
of the day. There are admirable views of
rural quietude , softness and harmony in
woods , trcos , brooks , blue skies and Arcadlun
loveliness goneraliy , and there are many daft
touches of Now England chiractar nnd hon
esty In the action of thocharaotors. . The
filial scone depleting the horse race Is n very
stirring bit of realism , and must bo seen to
bo fully described and appreciated. It Is to
all Intents the actual start and finish of n
race , which the audlouco sees intact , with
galloping' steed , whipping Jockey and ull the
bustling incidents of thn track.
W. G. Smyth's "Hoss nnd Hoss" com
pany is un unusually largo ono for farce-
comedy nnd numbers twenty-five people all

By resorting to the principle which Is
called "position , " a majority of the vowels
can bo omitted and still leave tha writing
perfectly legible. Words are written In
three positions , first , second nnd third. The
position of a word Is generally determined by
the position of the accented vowol. That is ,
If the accented vowel Is a first position
vowel , the word is written in the Oist posi
tion ; 'or if a second position vowel , the word
is written in the sooond position ; It a third
position vowel , the word is written In tbo
third position.
The words which have been horctoforo
given In the writing exercises and illustra
tions arc second position words. Words
that are composed entirely of .horizontal con
sonants are written about one-sixth of an
Inch above the line for first position ; on iho
line for second , und undor-tho line for'ibird
position. Words containing perpendicular or
slanting consonants should bo written so the
flrst oonsouunt does not quito touch tno line
for the flrst position. For the second posi
tion so It rests on the lino. For the third , so
It extends through the lino.
If the outline of a word contains more
than two simple stroka consonants , It is gen
erally safe to write It lu the second position ,
though the loading vowel may bou first or
third position.
The diphthong "ow" is represented os Illus
trated In the words ou.o nnd mow ( line ) .
